A lot of people will argue that the NFL Combine isn’t the best way to determine talent. And that may be true due to the way prospects can be overvalued. The Combine serves as a tool to match what scouts already know with the things they want to know. Is a guy coachable? What don’t we know about his background? What can he tell us about himself that we didn’t already know? Here are a few of the top surprises and disappointments from the NFL Combine.
Sometimes hindsight can be a beautiful thing. Michael Jordan dismantled Magic’s laker’s right? That’s what hindsight tells us. What hindsight neglects to mention is the part where James Worthy and Byron Scott missed a whole game due to injury. Lebron James was running away from his legacy, he needed Wade to win a ring right?
That’s what hindsight tells us. What if I told you that after suffering a routing from the Boston Celtics in the playoffs that Wade himself needed help. Babe Ruth is the great Gambino he slugged away for years and represented a more pure time in baseball, but when we see black and white highlights of the good ole days we don’t see any color on the bases. Hindsight is also prepared to tell us that Mayweather’s knockout of Ortiz was pure skill. Perception is reality and in sports Hindsight is the architect of greatness.
